TP Link Archer C1200 Wireless Router Unboxing

 

TP Link Archer C1200 Router Review:

To get a better perspective of the performance offered by TP-Link Archer C1200, we compared it with other AC1200 wireless routers (Edimax BR-6478AC V2 and Tenda AC9 AC1200), ASUS RT-AC58U (an AC1300 dual-band wireless router) and TP-LINK Archer C7 (the router which TP-Link Archer C1200 is replacing).

We first evaluated the wireless network that is broadcast on the 2.4 GHz frequency, and we looked at the signal strength, with a tool named inSSIDer. As you can see, the signal strength provided by TP-Link Archer C1200 tends to be weaker than most of its competitors. However, this doesn’t mean that the WiFi that it provides is slow.

Then, we used SpeedTest to measure how fast the internet connection provided by this router is. In the download test, TP-Link Archer C1200 performed well, however it was not the fastest. Continuing our measurements on the 2.4 GHz wireless network, we used the PassMark Performance test to transfer data between two computers linked to the network. TP-Link Archer C1200 was a good performer, but it was not perfect. Additionally, it struggled in rooms where other affordable routers struggle too. When looking at the upload speed, we noticed a similar situation: TP-Link Archer C1200 performed well, but it was not the best.

We moved on to the wireless network that is broadcast on the 5GHz frequency, and we looked at the signal strength, using inSSIDer. As you can see, the signal strength offered by TP-Link Archer C1200 tends to be weaker than many of its competitors. However, this doesn’t mean that the WiFi that it offers is slow.

Then, we took SpeedTest, to measure the speed of the internet link on the 5GHz wireless network. To see the maximum potential of this router, we used the world’s only PCI-E network card with support for 4×4 MU-MIMO. When we used this network card, we obtained a maximum speed of 286.39 Mbps for the download speed, which is a good result for an AC1200 wireless router.

When looking at the upload speed, TP-Link Archer C1200 outshone its competition by a significant margin, in almost every room of our test apartment. For the last measurements on the 5GHz wireless network, we used the PassMark Performance test to transfer data between two computers linked to the network. TP-Link Archer C1200 offered fast downloads and, in some rooms, it managed to be the fastest router.

Final:

Our tests have shown that TP-Link Archer C1200 is a fast router on the 5GHz band and it offers the fastest uploads possible for an AC1200 wireless router. If you’re choosing a budget wireless router for your house, the TP-Link Archer C1200 should be on your shortlist of options.

  1. Reece Vaughan

    Very impressed with this router. I had been running on a Virgin HUB 3 which I had a lot of issues with. Despite complaining to virgin I still wasn’t getting the speeds I was paying for and had limited coverage throughout my home.
    I did some research and decided to purchase a router after finding out that the Virgin Hub would be used as a Modem.
    I was a little unsure as I thought it would be difficult to install. To my surprise it was very easy and I now have full speed and coverage in all areas of my home. The children have also noticed an improvement in their gaming as It was often ‘lagging’.
    I am Very impressed with this Router and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade there home network. Especially those who wish to replace the ‘poor quality’ Virgin Hub.
